As we continue to expand our reach, we are learning about more arts and health initiatives across Canada and are creating a central repository of all these projects. In parallel, our hope is for AHNC to serve as a platform for dialogue among the Networkâ€™s participants as well as those interested to learn more about arts and health.
Make sure to sign up for our first free webinar on June 4th, to talk about arts and health in Canada. Our panel includes: Amy Clements-Cortes, Sarah de Leeuw, Stephen Leafloor and AHNCâ€™s Kira Tozer. We are looking forward to the dialogue and hope that you can participate. This webinar is organized in partnership with CHNET-Works! at the University of Ottawa.
